    Just seen they've got one at Inno in the Sun and seen them at other places but really, what is the point???

    I couldnt think of anything more off putting than being with loads of ppl with headphones on 'going sick' while people look on sayin 'look at that bunch of retards'

    Thoughts?

    Stupid idea, main reason I go to a rave it too feel the bass, if I wanted to sit and listen to tunes through headphones I'd listen to my ipod

    Silent disco at Raindance last year was sick. But mainly because it was outside so i could sit down, smoke and still listen to music.

    interesting gimmick, but seems a little silly imo.

    Exactly this, nothing better than being shaken by bass

    They always have a tent @ festivals here in oz,

    good for a break, or inbetween djs, or if you want some space to drink/smoke !

    I would like to try one, The only thing is my headphones wouldnt compare to a sound system for example i never get ringing in my ears from my headphones, Just wouldnt feel right waking up after a night out without my ears ringing

    It's a gimmick thats fun for about 20 minutes but then the novelty wears off and you want to be back at a proper sound system. Normally you have 2 DJ's playing at the same time and you can switch between them.

    At some festivals they have to stop the music after a certain time so it's the only alternative. If this is not the case then there's no point.

    That must look absolutely ridiculous on the whole brocking out side of things

    Did you have to be silent, or do you get monitors still?

    have done but never to a dnb night

    was weird enough with loads of students listening to shit chart, cant really see the point without feeling all the bass, takes away the impact surely?
